Ugh, no thanks.

Why does everything come in 75 flavors now?  Wheat Thins, Ritz, Oreos, Goldfish...
Whose fault is this, who can I hold responsible?  Potato chips? Baskin Robbins?  WHO?!

You love this signature.

I think all those flavors are used to attract customers who will eat the special flavor, not like it, and buy the original. Thus fortifying the flagship flavor.

Right vkimo. So in the customer's mind, it goes something like this:

"Oooh! Chocolate Brussel Sprout Corn Flakes! Wierd... I have to try those."

"Wow... these are just nasty. I wish I had a bowl of just plain old Corn Flakes."

"Ah. Corn Flakes. These should cleanse my defiled palette."

"Why did I buy these? I don't even really like Corn Flakes."

Precisely! Remember New Coke? It tasted to bad it put the old Coke back on top!

Lay’s strikes again with coffee, wasabi, mango, and bacon flavors

Those all sound absolutely horrendous.  shakin steak approved potato chip flavors are as follows:

  • Plain
  • Sour Cream & Onion
  • Sour Cream & Cheddar
  • maybe garlic idk?

That's it.

I have my doubts about the bacon and cappuccino chips.

I'd never eat the cappuccino flavored chips. I don't like coffee much anyway. I don't know why they are making a big deal about the wasabi flavor. There used to be wasabi flavored Funyuns. I never tried them though.
